Encapsulating Urwerk: UR-112 Aggregat Odyssée (Video)
by Ian Skellern
As a reminder that I’m getting old, it seems like it was only yesterday that Urwerk was a brash young startup, however 2022 sees the brand celebrating its 25th anniversary. And wow! What an incredible range of avant-garde timepieces this incredibly creative indy brand has blessed us with over the years, from the relatively tame (tame for Urwerk that is) UR-103 (it “only” had orbiting rotating satellite disks), the insane Opus 5 for Harry Winston, to the ultra-complicated UR-1001 Zeit Device pocket watch and even an atomic clock, the AMC, which synchronizes with a wristwatch.
But for me, the one timepiece that encapsulates the most of Urwerk in one watch is the UR-112 Aggregat with its roller-like satellite prisms displaying hours and minutes, silicon disk indicating digital seconds, and a protective cover that flips up to reveal all.
And if you still want more, here’s another short video of the UR-112 Aggregat.
